About Eva Mueller
Eva Mueller is a German non-binary Brooklyn-based photographer and conceptual artist. They studied graphic fashion and portrait photography at the International Center of Photography and Parsons School of Design in New York. After a career as a fashion and music photographer, Mueller shifted their focus to fine art and portraiture.
The majority of Mueller’s work focuses on the core constructs of our human existence, such as race, gender identity, and sexuality as well as the naked body. Mueller purposefully creates images that need a second and third look for the viewer to grasp the concept and thus initiate a thought process that will lead to a deeper understanding of the work. They mainly employ photography and video in their art practice.
In 2017 Mueller presented “GenderFuck,” a portrait series of individuals outside the gender binary at the Leslie-Lohman Project Space in New York City. In 2018 they presented “Flowers & Chocolate,” an installation about the Black male sexuality at Art During the Occupation Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. Along with the exhibition, Mueller launched a limited-edition artist’s book. With “Twisted Twins – XXY,” Mueller created an immersive installation about the precariousness of gender, age and sexuality, at Satellite NYC in Brooklyn, NY in 2019.
Mueller’s self-portrait series MYSOLATION, shot during lockdown in 2020 had received numerous awards and was selected to be shown at [EXPOSURE] at Scope Art Fair, Miami in 2021.
In June 2022, Mueller curated PRESENT: prideART New York, a group show featuring works by 36 queer artists from New York and Berlin and contributed four photographers to the concurrent show, “It’s A Queer, Queer, Queer World!” at Soho Project Space.
Mueller’s current show, “Flowers & Chocolate” premiered at Christopher Stout’s Art During the Occupation Gallery in 2018, followed by inclusion a Canadian group show, “Positive Masculinity,” and most recently at MAISON 10 in New York in 2021 as part of their “Queer & Sexy.” exhibition.
